What Can I Make on a Blackstone Griddle?

The answer is anything and everything. Truly every food group can be covered.

Burgers, Fajitas, Garlic Shrimp, breakfast, lunch, and dinner – the possibilities and versatility of a Blackstone Griddle are endless!

What is the Best Oil to Use with a Flat Top Griddle?

Vegetable and canola oil are the best for flat-top grilling because you’ll need a high smoke point. Oil is also key in the overall taste of your final product. The right oil can depend on what you’re cooking, but either way you want to make sure you use enough oil to prevent your food from sticking to the griddle.

5. Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

If you’re a fan of grilled cheese, then you will want to try this recipe. For the ultimate grilled cheese experience, you want to have bread that will toast on the outside while remaining moist on the inside. For the cheese, it’s truly up to you, but the tip here is to bring your cheese to room temperature first so that it melts quicker on the griddle.

6. Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich

Mouthwatering and messy, two words that perfectly describe this Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich. Use thinly sliced rib-eyed steak, sauteed onions and the cheese whiz for an ooey-gooey goodness you will want to experience over and over again!

7. Griddle Pancakes

Griddle Pancakes

A staple in many households, pancakes are a go-to breakfast option that is forever a favorite. To cook from scratch, just combine flour, eggs, milk, sugar and butter. If you’re looking for a bit of a thicker and fluffier pancake simply substitute buttermilk for the milk. The tip here is to put enough oil on the griddle so that the pancakes don’t stick.

8. Grilled S’mores

Griddle S'mores

Camping favorites brought right to your kitchen! Grab the graham crackers, chocolate bars, marshmallows and the kids will be on their way to camping fun without the mess. Simply place the cracker on the griddle, place the chocolate and marshmallow on top, wait for that ooey-gooey melted goodness and then top it off with the other graham cracker.

What is the Best Griddle to Buy?

Blackstone is the most popular griddle brand. Depending on your preference, you can buy a tabletop griddle or outdoor flat top gas grill griddle.

Presto, Zojirushi, Nostalgia and Broil King are also possibilities.

Is a Griddle Healthier than a Grill?

I love both griddle and grill. To say that one is better than the other really depends on what food you’re cooking. The griddle can be seen as the healthier option as it requires less grease or oil, whereas a grill has the smoke going into your food. However, either option is healthy so long as you are cautious about the amount of oil you’re using and the way you cook your meat over an open flame.
